Safer North Community Trust is a key stakeholder in ensuring North Shore is a safe community and a safe environment in which to live. Accreditation as a WHO Safe Community has highlighted North Shore's focus on safety and its desire to make continual safety improvements into the future. These improvements will come about by ongoing and effective initiatives that focus on all safety aspects of community life and reaffirm the desire to live, work, play and visit the North Shore. North shore is showing the rest of the nation that injury reduction outcomes actually safe the nation many millions of taxpayer dollars. With the new Auckland Council one year old at 1 November 2011, Safer North continues with the same focus as we believe that being safe in the community and free from injury starts from the family, to the community and then continues in an upward direction. Support is very important from the top but motivation at the community level is vital. It is a journey and we can all be part of it.
